Let's Take A Risk

Part two of my shoot with the talented Bess Friday {part 1 here} was at sunset & in hindsight a quintessential moment in my adventures with Dean Street Society. A year ago I never would have worn this outfit. Things I've embraced in the last year that are demonstrated here include: wearing animal print, wearing button-downs, wearing button-downs tied at the waist, layering a shirt over a dress & boldly layered accessories. Fully owning my role as a stylist & seeing the world as a style blogger has given me so much permission to take risks & is a constant reminder to be creative. Whatever your job/title/vocation, the same can apply to you. The only person who has to give you permission is you.

What's a style risk you've taken in the last year? Something you've embraced that hadn't crossed your mind this time last year?

with grace & gumption,
